Ali’s father and I decided to surprise him with tickets to WWE last night in Augusta, GA. We hinted at the prospect of a surprise on Friday. Why did we do that? He asked constantly of when would he receive his surprise. The buildup was brutal. LOL! He was so eager to find out what it was. After arriving at the James Brown Arena, he finally figured out that he was going to see a WWE event. After standing out in the sun for what seemed forever, we finally got into the arena. We took our seats in section 223. Immediately, Ali didn’t like the seats because we were elevated. Last year we had floor seats but both Ali and Tyson had a hard time seeing over everyone else.
The Ultimate Surprise
Not long after sitting Vinny who works with WWE came over and asked who was WWE fans. Ali exclaimed he was. His dad and myself could careless but we know how much he loves it. Vinny asked would Ali be willing to answer a few questions on camera. Of course, he said yes. The announcer came over and talked to us a bit. Ali was a bit anxious at being on camera but let me tell you once the camera was rolling there was no nerves.
I recorded Ali talking to the announcer but please forgive me my phone was upside down. Basically, Ali told the announcer that Roman Reigns was his favorite fighter. The announcer asked what is one of Roman Reigns moves. Ali said the superman punch. He also went on to say that he loves Roman Reigns, whoever fighting him better get ready, when he grows up he’s going to fight with him. The reward for doing this was RINGSIDE TICKETS! We couldn’t believe it!
A Dream Come True
So, you would think this would be the epitome of the night but no! The night went on with Big Cass throwing him the shirt he was wearing. He got to clap hands with a few of the other fighters passing by. But his highlight was being able to take a picture with Roman Reigns. He said he would never forget this night. I’m so proud and happy for him.
And to think I tried to get out of going. Although I’m the only girl in the house I get to experience and make memories with all the boys in my house. Which means more to me every day that I live.
